Abstract

La investigación de las diversas manifestaciones de la actividad poético-musical en época helenística, muy viva e incluso incrementada respecto a etapas anteriores, se ha realizado sobre todo en fuentes epigráficas y papiráceas, pero las fuentes literarias contribuyen a delinear y completar el cuadro. Plutarco en las Vitae, basándose en fuentes probablemente helenísticas, aporta una valiosa información sobre fiestas y agones, sobre poetas y ejecutantes, sobre los textos poéticos destinados a la performance y sobre los géneros a los que podrían ser adscritos, transmitiendo también algunos de esos textos.
Abstract:

Most research into the diverse manifestations of poetic-musical activity in the Hellenistic Age, which was very much alive and even more abundant than in earlier times, has been carried out using epigraphic and papyrus sources. However, literary sources contribute to delineating and completing the picture we have. In the Vitae, Plutarch, probably using Hellenistic sources as a basis, contributes valuable information on the feasts and agones, poets and performers, poetic texts made for performance and the genres to which they could be ascribed, as well as transmitting some of these texts.
